THIBODAUX - A lot was on the line in Nicholls’ game last Saturday against Houston Baptist at Guidry Stadium.

A victory over Houston Baptist would allow NSU to finish unbeaten at home for only the third time in school history while solidifying its ranking in the Top 25 while... Keep Reading

With the way Army controlled the clock in the second half with its relentless triple-option attack, the Green Wave knew it... Keep Reading

THIBODAUX - Once again, players from River Parish high schools played a prominent role in a Nicholls victory.

The Colonels’ defense continually had their backs... Keep Reading

It has been no coincidence that the pipeline of River Parish football talent to Nicholls State has been flourishing over the past few years. Since being named the Colonels head coach in 2015, Tim Rebowe, a Norco native, Destrehan grad, and former Destrehan head coach has regularly tapped into his talent-rich home base. This spring, eleven River Parish players are on the Nicholls roster. Next week Rebowe is headed home again, but this time he won... Keep Reading

They were there for Tim Rebowe when he needed them most. With Nicholls clinging to a 35-28 lead over Stephen F. Austin in double-overtime last Saturday in Thibodaux, the Colonels needed a defensive stop to win the game – and there they were. Of the 11 players on the field for the Nicholls defense, five were from the River Parishes. There was Sully Laiche, the former Lutcher Bulldog on the defensive line. Linebackers Evan Veron of...
